May Kayak Fishing Report Photographs by Bill Howard

If any of you have been following me on Facebook or the forum here, you know that I have been dealing with some health issues the past few months. An unexplained illness has left me very weak and exhausted at the end of the day, or after any activities. I am still working with my doctors trying to figure it out.

I figured I could feel like crap out on the water just as well as I could on the couch, so the past two weekends I got out to test out the waters. I’m still not feeling 100%, and today I am really feeling it - but it was worth it to get out with my good friends.

Last weekend I got out with Joe, and despite the "Supermoon" we did see a few fish. We even managed to call our own shots. The first fish of the morning was an awesome strike that had us both thinking “Snook!” – but it turned out to be a nice redfish.
I love the reaction on Joe’s face:

Last weekend I got out with Greg, his son Robert, and my friend Norm. Greg has been laid up with a shoulder injury, and like me, hasn’t been out in a long while. It got a little windy towards late morning, so we were off the water by noon. It was good fishing, though - everyone caught a little something.

I’m really looking forward to putting this spring behind me and getting out on the water more!
